Getting used to short hair takes some practice and figuring out how to make it do what you want takes even more practice. 🙂 Getting your pixie to stand out and be fun and bouncy is always a top priority when you have short hair after chemo (or any time!). If you haven’t seen it already, check out Sarah Bryant’s youtube and Instagram. Her hair is awesome and her hair tutorials are really easy to follow. (Her make up tutorials are fun too!) When I go and get my hair cut, I bring a picture of her hair along with me.
This video shows how she gets her pixie super voluminous (and also shows how to afix a graduation cap as a random bonus). Try it out! Let us know how you like to style your pixie as your hair is growing back in!

Whether short hair is your jam, or you’re growing your hair out after chemo treatments…you definitely have more than a few ways to style your pixie cut!…
Growing your hair out after chemo can be a painful process. The hardest part, is having to relearn your hair at each length and figure out what products to use and what styles to attempt. As I approach the 1 year mark, my hair is finally long enough to purposely style my hair instead of simply smoothing or scrunching it into submission.
I had wavy hair before chemo and after chemo, I was blessed with the infamous “chemo curls”. I absolutely loved my chemo curls. Styling was easy with my favorite curl cream. Occasionally, I would go in with my mini straightener to shape a few pieces, but mostly I would wake up and go. Eight months after chemo, my hair started to boast some serious length, and my curls began to disappear. Now, when I wake up my hair is a MESS and I actually have to put effort into styling my hair.
Since I have never had short hair before, I have been forced to spend time learning about this length. I have watched endless Youtube videos, read millions of product reviews and experimented with countless tools and products. As I get the hang of certain styles, I want to share them with you for inspiration. For this post, I have documented 4 different styles you can easily create with pixie length hair and I have included tutorials for how to create these looks.
